Piero Messina

About Piero Messina

Piero was assistant director on Paulo Sorrentino’s LA GRANDE BELEZZA, and his debut feature THE WAIT starring Juliette Binoche premiered at Venice Film Festival 2015. He recently shot his English language debut ANOTHER END, an incredibly dynamic and intimate near-fi relationship drama, with Indigo producing and Gael García Bernal stars as Sal, Bérénice Bejo and Renate Reinsve starring . It premiered at the Berlinale earlier this year. Piero is fantastic with talent – due to covid, ANOTHER END’s development was protracted and the list of actors he attached along the way, was phenomenal – he has just been on holiday with both his most recent leads separately which goes some way to show his ability to foster strong relationship with talent! He is really keen to continue working internationally and like Sorrentino – his films are wonderfully playful but he also really enjoys big action set pieces as shown in L’Ora. In the tv space, he most recently lead directed L’ORA, the Sicilian Mafia series with Indiana which was picked up by Apple and prior to that directed on Netflix’ SUBURRA.
